Queen Creek Women in Business is sponsoring its third annual Shoe Drive in the Queen Creek /San Tan Valley community through April.
New or gently-used shoes are needed for young children through teens — a need that has increased due to the current economic climate, organizers say. The shoes will be distributed by the Pan de Vida Foundation.
To help, select an “egg” in a Easter basket at a participating business, purchase or donate a pair of shoes for the child listed, and then drop off the shoes in the tubs provided. The following businesses are participating:
• YMCA at Copper Basin, 28300 N. Main St., San Tan Valley
• Two M&I Bank locations — Ironwood and Ocotillo, and Queen Creek Branch on Ellsworth Road
• Apple Dumpling Café, Power and Chandler Heights roads, Queen Creek
• Queen Creek Library, 22350 S. Ellsworth Road
• Grow and Learn Preschool, 18914 E San Tan Blvd., Suite #103, Queen Creek
• Blackbird Music, 18911 E. San Tan Blvd. Suite 121, Queen Creek
• Trophy’s Steakhouse, 7215 S. Power Road, Suite 107, Queen Creek
